Week 3
Buds. Not fattening
OutForReal answered grow question 4 years ago
Hi homie ! It is a bit late to answer but I'm looking on week 8 and I your plant is really dark at that stage ! You should give her some PK to help her senescence !! Hope it will help you at that stage :+1:

At Week 7 my buds weren't very fat either. Depending on the strain that's totally normal. Increasing the lumens & adding more nutes (P & K since she's in flowering) are the best ways to promote bud growth. But don't go overboard with the feedings. Patience is key; all strains grow at different rates & have unique bud structures. Some are "late bloomers" that don't put on weight until later. And yeah: bad soil can be the cause of MANY problems so always go for something high quality like Black Gold or Fox Farms. Hope that helps!

After reading your info for this week I agree with what you said. Don’t use that mud soil again. You need a well aerated light medium to which you can add your nutrients. Also Some tips -Don’t put your indoor plants outdoors, first your probably better with an auto indoors. Second any of the nastys that are outside pests and bad germs, e.g fuugus, algae is in closer proximity to your plants then you take them back indoors and expose your grow room to those nastys, some may say I’m paranoid but if it happens to you, you lose a few crops and months of time effort and money you will think twice. Again I agree don’t top now... but what both Stick and Michka are saying about nutrients are slightly off in my book. Yes you can give bloom nutrients too early that can cause a hault in upward growth as she focuses on flower. And I’ve found I had to add grow nutrients later into the flower cycle sometimes. But with adding grow nutrients if the soil is spent and your auto is still in veg then you’re going to have to add grow nutrients. Otherwise your plants are looking healthy. Last quote by I don’t know “bigger roots, bigger shoots”

Hello my friend, maybe you can place them where they can have a little more light ? All the rest is good, they look good!

I agree on the topping and lst and u did right buy running bloom nutes i still can not figure out where people get these claims about the nutes on autos ohhh yeah GOOGLE i forgot:thinking_face::thinking_face::thinking_face:You do not have to give veg nutes to a auto sure everybody does it does help but not as much as people think there are more problems u run across i run only bloom nutes also with a few more non burning feed and i have no problems in coco i had to move one in a tent by herself shes getting so big only bloom nutes there is no such thing as early flower on a auto by giving her bloom nutes really :thinking_face::thinking_face::thinking_face::thinking_face:you did a good job on her keep up the good work:+1::+1::beers::beers:

Hey iron man I see you're doing the royal dwarf seed which fortunately already will stay relatively small. You could probably up your light to 18 hours and be safe and they would help with building up the plant. Theres many options of keeping plants short such as training like you're doing, but also environmental such as controlling heat to keep smaller. If you're having difficulties with muddy soil, you could always add a small fan and direct it at the soil to speed up drying. Good job so far with the plants. Happy and healthy growing. :seedling::green_heart:

Hi @Ironman! You're giving blooming nutrients to a plant which is currently in the vegetative stage. As a result, your baby is early-flowering and her size is small. You should feed your plants with vegetative nutrients (BioGrow, FishMix) until the first pistils appear, not before. Moreover, your light schedule (12/12) is appropriate for flowering stage, not for the vegetative one, she needs the maximum light/sun during the first weeks to grow big and reveal her full potential. Now it's almost too late to TOP/FIM her, she won't recover fast enough to produce heavy colas, so I would recommend to let her grow 'naturally' and apply some slight LST techniques (bend her stems down with strings/ropes) in order to maximize your yield. Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date so we can help you adjusting your parameters, and happy growing!

Firstly as Athos stated It’s too early to be using the top-max and bio bloom so pull those from use. I would definatly recomendation using a cal-mag solution if you are using reverse osmosis water but if not then do not add unless you are noticing a deficiency. As far as space is concerned do Low Stress Training and switch to flower earlier than normal to effectively use your space available. Remember that a flowering plant will typically grow 2-3 times the size of when it was last in vegitative growth. This can help by multiplying its height by 2-3 to get a rough estimate as to how y’all it will be when it is done flowering. Hope this helps and good luck on your grow!

It's too early to be using topmax and biobloom. Use fishmix only for now. And maybe a calcium magnesium additive, depending on your tap water.
If you have limited space, consider topping and doing some LST.
